I usually try to post a link and recap to our latest podcast within a day of the podcast. That generally means sometime on Saturday, or Sunday at the latest.

That didn’t happen this week. It is somewhat appropriate that our guest this time was Rachelina Bonacci, the Executive Director of Howard County Tourism. We invited Rachelina back to tell us about all of the great things to do in HoCo this summer. In fact I was so busy this weekend with loco things to that I didn’t have to write a post about it!

Admittedly, I was once one of those who ridiculed the idea of a HoCo Tourism office. I mean HoCo is certainly nice and all but it isn’t exactly the first place that comes to mind when making plans for the summer.

Then again, maybe I just take too much for granted.

Consider that Wine in The Woods is the most popular wine festival in the state or that sporting events like the Columbia Triathlon attract people to HoCo from as far away as New Zealand.

Their promotion efforts are paying off too. On Saturday night Mama Wordbones decided to catch the production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in Ellicott City at the Patapsco Female Institute. We were lucky we got in. Shortly after we arrived the event sold out.

There is much more of course so if you have thirty nine minutes to spare, check out the the 43rd episode of “and then there’s that…” and find out what is happening in your own backyard this summer. You can listen to the podcast here.
